WRITNG COACHING

IS COACHING FOR YOU?

Writing is a lonely business, and publishing can be extremely difficult. My work as a writing coach combines consulting for children's literature (or kidlit) writing careers with coaching toward writing success. As an agented, published YA author, and instructor at Stanford University, I have a unique combination of skills to bring to coaching relationships. Below, see comments from clients who can testify to the benefits of working with me! Coaching might be right for you if:

  • you are querying, nervous, and need a plan

  • you are deciding whether to self-publish

  • you have an agent, are on sub, but don't have a deal yet

  • you are struggling with book two

  • you love to write, but can't finish a manuscript

  • you are published, and struggling with time management or commitment to writing  

  • you are published, but struggling with motivation and idea generation

 

I'm an engaging and high energy coach who can bring my expertise to your writing career and coach you through it. Scroll for options!

All plans are sliding-scale in 2020.

I would wholeheartedly encourage anyone serious about their writing to look to Kath for coaching and advice, and appreciate what Kath has done for me. -Stacey Bartlett
